Trivia

Throughout Twilight (2008), Kristen Stewart wears brown contact lenses in order to match Bella's eyes. The same is true of The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), except for one scene (the Jacob/Bella "break-up" scene outside of Jacob's house). In this scene, Stewart did not wear lenses. Instead, her brown eyes are actually CG applied during post-production. This was because the large amounts of rain kept affecting her lenses. See more »

Goofs

When Bella arrives at Jacob's house in La Push with the two motorbikes, she parks her truck next to a silver truck, but when the shot widens out, the silver truck in now parked some way in front of her red Chevy. See more »

Quotes

Edward Cullen: You promised you wouldn't do anything stupid or reckless.

I'm not the only one thinking that this was
24 September 2010 | by vampyrecowboySee all my reviews

retarded...

I have the DVD sitting on the table near my computer where I was eagerly awaiting seeing a twilight movie...and after 3 years, I finally did.

Even though I passed by the set countless number of times and I did not walk onto it, I finally came about and even though living in the same town and knowing people who worked on the set, I gave in and got a Twilight movie.

Disappointment ensued.

Aside of flat characters and even flatter performances from any leads or even supporting cast, the movie was almost entire shot on green screen - which makes for poor story exploration.

The story dragged and was boring...the actors lacked any real interest.

Now, if I was a 13 year old girl...swayed by mass marketing and publicity and Entertainment Tonight pushing Robert Pattinson's face across the screen, I might think different - but I'm not...

...so for sex appeal on any of the leads...they have none...least of all Robert.

They just drag any character they have to as long as they can before they wear it out.

They don't have any zest or charisma or special draw that pulls us in.

I can't imagine sitting through 3 of these movies - because it's overblown Hollywood hype with marketing and publicity tried to make a story where there was none.

Without all the aforementioned hype, this movie would have been passed upon by the majority of the public and only been watched by the "serious" vampire buffs.

That aside...this movie sucks...pun intended.

There are far better vampire movies...this is not in the mix.

This just bites...once again...pun intended.
